First unveiled at the New York and Detroit Auto Shows, respectively, the Cadillac ATS Coupe and the new Escalade SUV are a few weeks from celebrating their European premiere in Geneva. Cadillac is also showcasing the Elmiraj concept for the first time in Switzerland and the production version of the ELR premium coupe featuring Cadillac’s Extended Range Electric Vehicle technology.

The ATS Coupe rides on the same 2,775 mm wheelbase, but features wider front and rear tracks than the sedan, standard 18-inch wheels and its own bodywork. The roof, doors, rear fenders and trunk lid are unique to the Coupe, along with a specific front fascia and front fenders. It is also the first production model to wear Cadillac’s revised crest.

Cadillac’s most compact premium Coupe ever will go on sale in Europe as of fall 2014, offering drivers the choice of rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, and the power from a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine.

Its strong lightweight structure and a power-to-weight ratio at the top of its segment enable the ATS Coupe to provide exhilarating performance with efficiency. Power is supplied by a 276 horsepower (203 kW) 2.0L Turbo engine that has been upgraded from the current ATS sport sedan to deliver nearly 14 percent more torque.

Key elements that contribute to the ATS Coupe’s responsive ride characteristics include a nearly perfect 50/50 weight balance, a low center of gravity, refined suspensions, and Cadillac’s Magnetic Ride Control real-time damping system.
 
The ATS Coupe is equipped with the CUE infotainment system. CUE is built around an eight-inch LCD multi-touch sensitive screen and designed to enhance the driving experience and complement customers’ increasingly connected lifestyles.

The fourth-generation Escalade is a bold, entirely new design yet instantly recognizable. It establishes new benchmarks for hand-tailored craftsmanship and technology. The new Escalade will be on sale in Europe towards the end of 2014 and will, for the first time in Europe, be available as an extended-length (ELV) edition.

Offered exclusively in Europe with a 4WD drivetrain, Cadillac’s flagship SUV features a new 6.2L V-8 engine that is more powerful and more efficient compared to its predecessor. It comes with acclaimed Magnetic Ride Control, the world’s fastest reacting suspension system as standard.

The exterior features crisp and sophisticated surfaces, accented by dramatic light-emitting diode (LED) lighting. The comprehensively redesigned interior offers more comfortable seats, leather that is hand cut, sewn and wrapped, with wood trim options. CUE, Cadillac’s advanced system for connectivity and control, is standard. Thanks to a stronger new body structure and Bose Active Noise Cancellation, the interior is also dramatically quiet.
